See how the glassy dewdrops
bedeck the starling’s nest!
Like iridescent pearls,
or medals on a chest.
‘I won those medals in the war,’
says Captain ‘Bulldog’ Starling.
‘So don’t you call ‘em dewdrops,
or I’ll slit your throat, my darling.’
Ok, children, let’s be going,
Mr Starling’s cross today.
See who can run the fastest,
I’ll show you the way.
